Over his career, Harang has handled the Cardinals fairly well, sometimes even dominating them. But he's also had his bumps against them too. The way he's been pitching so far this year, I feel confident that the Reds can win with him on the mound.
Looper is coming off of a 7 inning, 2 hit performance against Houston, but previously he had been shellacked by the Giants to the tune of 10 hits and 7 runs over 3 innings pitched. He made 2 starts against the Reds last year and pretty much shut them down, going 7 innings in both and allowing just one run total on 7 hits combined. That one run was off of a Josh Hamilton HR and he's no longer with the team. OH NOES!!!!!! The good thing is that we've always got this game to throw back in his face. Oh sure he may have millions of dollars and questionable good looks, but April 4, 2005 was our day! And he can't take that away ever!
NOTE: The game is on FSN Ohio today! I guess Grande couldn't get enough love in for the Cardinals in just two days.
